    The outpouring of emotion by American citizens over the murders in Pittsburgh has required all of us to, once again, ask ourselves some very important questions. Maybe this time we will listen to the answers.  

  • Correction

    The Canyon Courier would like to correct an error we inadvertently made in a Community Voices column by Peter Lindquist in the Oct. 31 paper.

    Thanks to the Evergreen Garden Club
    I just wanted to give a big shout-out to the Evergreen Garden Club, whose members do such a spectacular job at maintaining the lovely flowerbeds located at various locations around town, including the post office, the Bergen Park fire station, the roundabout in Bergen Park, by the dam spillway, and any I may have overlooked.

    Amendment 73 provides funding for education
    I will be voting on Amendment 73. I am a senior at Conifer High School and my younger brother is a junior.
